    After calling 3 major mail order stores for Lee bullet molds with no results, I thought I call Lee Precision Customer Service as I had done in the past. I got a recording, Lee isn't even answering their phone until further notice !!!. hdbiker

    If supplies catch up, a $1,400 check on the way for most Americans will likely put us back in a hole. And gun control is likely the next priority after COVID relief gets passed.

    Things are feast and famine here. Last week I was on the interwebs quite a bit for the job, and was able to have some extra tabs open to watch the various sites (Scored some Alliant powder this way). It appears some powders are becoming available but the sites are shutting down the search functions so you have to manually browse.
    Locally, one store went for two weeks with nothing, then 26FEB they got two cases of each primer (SPP, SMPP, LPP, LMPP). It was like someone kicked over an anthill in there...they had a ticket machine (think the deli at Walmart) and were calling numbers....started at 1215 hours - out at 1345 hours.

    Same, BPS/Cabelas get shipments here every week or two, usually sold out by noon but ours still have a few powder choices.

    I had a good trip to a local store in central pa. They had just got a shipment of missouri bullets, and they had some powders, especially ramshot. I got 4lb of N320 and 9mm bullets and was happy. No primers still.
